On Jan. 12, the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) celebrated the groundbreaking for a new senior housing project in Seattle’s Central District. Construction is underway on the 61-unit development, located at 2010 South Jackson Street. The building will provide permanent supportive housing for homeless and low-income seniors.

At the groundbreaking, Alan Castle, LIHI board president, announced plans to name the building after legendary Seattle jazz and blues vocalist Ernestine Anderson. Jackson Street has a rich history of jazz music, and Anderson is one of the best known artists to emerge from Seattle. Her daughter, Shelley Young, was in attendance. (end)
